Elgar Encyclopedia of Labour Studies

About the eBook

This authoritative Encyclopedia provides a comprehensive overview of central concepts in labour studies, and how they can be used to analyse labour markets. Examining regional and sectoral labour markets alongside the internal labour markets of firms, it clearly lays out the current state of social scientific knowledge on labour.

Combining theoretical and empirical insights, leading scholars map the latest developments in labour economics, focusing on micro-level data and applied studies. Entries explore the definition, background, and history of key concepts in labour studies, including regional and sectoral labour markets, labour policy, different forms of labour, labour market discrimination, and the decisions facing firms concerning labour. Highlighting the most important aspects of the topics covered, this Encyclopedia gives expert insight into the steadily growing research and public policy debate on labour issues.

The Encyclopedia of Labour Studies will be an invaluable resource for academics and students of labour economics and policy, employment relations, social policy, business, and management. It will also be a useful guide for policy practitioners seeking to deepen their understanding of how labour markets function.
